What are the symptoms for Acne scars?

Signs and symptoms

What you see on your skin varies with the types of acne scars you have. Your dermatologist will talk about two types of acne scars:

Depressed: Most acne scars cause depressions or pits in the skin.

Depressed scars usually form on the face. A dermatologist may refer to these scars as “atrophic” (a-tro-fic) scars or use the name of the specific depressed scar:

  • Boxcar
  • Icepick
  • Rolling
Raised: These acne scars are more common on the back and chest. The medical term for a raised scar is “hypertrophic.”

Now that you know what the different types of acne scars look like, you may be wondering why some people get them. You’ll find the answer within Acne scars: Who gets and causes.
